For the Newlyweds

My daughter's teacher got married last week in Hawaii and I have had this stamp set in mind for a card for her all week. It is a simple card, but the pearls and rhinestones make it sparkle and shine...probably like her new ring!!!

Coffee and Tea Time!

I went to my friend Karen's for stamp club recently and made this cute box using two milk carton die cuts, a coffee and tea cup wheel and some punches. It holds quite a few Hershey's mini candy bars or kisses...I like the black magic technique we used...embossing in white on black cardstock and then using watercolor pencils to color onto the cardstock and white embossed designs. Black rhinestones add a little bling to finish it off. This is the perfect size for party favors!

Wish Big!

Here is a fun and feminine birthday card I made for a friend at work. I used my SU Button Buddies stamp set and a lot of little pearls for bling. I used a border punch to created the ruffle around the background circle by punching along the edge of a strip of patterned paper, then ran in through a crimper a few times, then hand pleated it onto the back of the circle that had adhesive on its edges. I put a cute button on her nose then popped up the piggy onto the top of the circle, and there you have it! Enjoy!
